Arrival Story:
We picked Roxy up at a local pet supply store where an organization called Pet Guardian Angel was adopting out dogs. My husband had found this little boy dachsund and wanted to take him but I saw Roxy shivering in her cage and I just knew that we had to bring her home. She was the second dog that we adopted after our first dog, Guera (my step-daughter's dog), came to live with us. We wanted her to be a companion to Guera.

Roxy is a very interesting little dog. She absolutely hates it when you give one of the other girls any attention particularly Guera. She is quite a little bully (mostly with Guera) and lets you know when she is upset with you by telling you. She literally talks to you to show you her displeasure by giving you a little growl and a disparaging look. If you look closely you will also find that Roxy has little lips which is so funny! One of her favorite things is to have chap stick put on her lips. She loves it. She also adores the smell of beer. My husband is a big beer drinker and Roxy likes to hang out around him when he is having a cold one. Roxy is also lightening fast and loves to run around the yard in big circles or taunt the others until they all end up chasing after her. Roxy also loves blankets. She is a burrower and loves to push her nose through the blankets until she is completely covered. Then she will go to sleep. She has the most dynamic personality of all of our girls.

Another Sunday Morning

Well, it is finally less than a thousand degrees outside right now! I am enjoying not baking out in the yard for once. This morning daddy put us out early because mommy likes to sleep in on Sundays. We hung out and played around in the yard. Finally, mommy came out to say good morning and give us all some breakfast. I wanted her to pet me but she was filling the water bowls and I am absolutely terrified of the water hose! The other girls seemed to get rubs on the head without incident so I decided to venture over for my fair share of the affection. Guera tried to edge me out of the action but I just gave her a dirty look and she moved out of the way. We have not been on the best terms lately. But, believe me, I am not losing any sleep over it!
